If an in-pool address is reserved by client id, rather than by hwaddr, the server will still sees the address as available to for allocation and will assign it to anyone.

In my testing, I created a reservation for client_id = "0001" for address, in a pool of - When submitting discovers with sequentially increasing MACs, the addresses handed out are 100, 101, 102, 103, 104, 105. 104 should have been skipped.

I have attached a snippet of the log output.

Added patch that remedies the intermediate problem. It's not a proper solution, more like a dirty hack. Proper solution will be developed soon.

The reservation by client identifier was never fully implemented and this is why it is not documented in the user guide. I am planning on inspecting the code to see how much work it is to finish this up.
